Please Help!!

I have a ground cover creeping plant that 3 nursery's and 2 Homedepots and Lowes have been unable to identify. My mother-in-law gave it to me and she has never known the name (she brought it from Connecticut 20 years ago). Unfortunately, I accidently killed about 95% of it and would LOVE to replace it but, after 3 days of searching the internet and taking a sample to the above mentioned places, no one knows what it is. They think it may be some kind of succulent or sedona? Where can I get some help. Please, Please, Please help me. Thank you for your time and response.

It has flat small "sunflower seed" shaped leaves that stack inside each other. The leaves close to the base are reddish tipped. Ground creeper with some white "fuzz". It produces a pink flower at the end of the stem. The flower is not daisy like or have petals. The bud starts out looking like a closed rose. The "arms" are no bigger around than a pencil.

MY PHOTOS will not download, so if you send me your email address I can send you some pictures.

If you went to the stores and they said it is maybe a succulent, then I think it is some species of Haworthia.

I uploaded an image to see if you recognize it.

Looks like Sedum lanceolatum or another Sedum species. Best to identify with flowers. Looks like too much fertilizer.

Narrowing down your location on the planet would be helpful.

If flowers are pink it can't be Sedum lanceolatum. Dear momof44, if you manage to upload some photographs of flower, the same way you uploaded the above one, it may help a lot in narrowing down.

If the flowers are pink, it wouldn't be Rhodiola integrifolia either... not sure this plant is actually in cultivation much.

It would be helpful to know if this is a houseplant, or if it is wintering over outdoors, whereabouts the OP is located, but anyway...
